Video: John Wall Breaks Down After Dedicating Win To Cancer Victim

John Wall

We’d begun a post highlighting John Wall’s incredible crunch-time performance in the Washington Wizards’ 133-132 double overtime win versus the Boston Celtics tonight. But nothing Wall did with the ball in his hands compared to the message he conveyed after the game. Watch an overtly emotional Wall dedicate his team’s victory to Miyah Telemaque-Nelson, a six year-old friend of the Washington superstar who succumbed to Burkitt’s lymphoma on Monday morning.

16 NBA Players Reveal What’s Currently Playing In Their Headphones

Notorious B.I.G.

I once asked Steve Nash if anyone in the NBA didn’t listen to rap. His answer surprised me, saying there are actually quite a few, more than you’d think, who have differing tastes. With the NBA Playoffs right around the corner, check out what 16 NBA players currently have playing in their headphones as they gear up for the most important part of the year. Read More »

Nicki Minaj Disses Chris Bosh On Wax

Nicki Minaj

If you were keeping up with my live coverage of All-Star Weekend, you probably would’ve noticed me paying close attention to Nicki Minaj. Not that I love her music. But you know why… Anyways, she dissed Chris Bosh in one of new songs called “Roman Reloaded” by spitting: Take you b—– to school than I Columbine you hoes/I hear the slick sh-t, b—- you washed/All you hoes cryin’ Christopher Bosh. Not exactly that buck that bought a bottle could’ve struck the lotto, but it does the trick. This video isn’t safe for work. Read More »

In The Place To Be: Live From The NBA All-Star Game

Dwight Howard

I’m back in here like Jordan with the 4-5. The NBA All-Star Game is set to “tip off” in exactly 54:40, according to the shot clock, and unlike last night, I did a better job navigating the traffic. No late bus ride. No idiot drivers. No being stepped on and abused by Ne-Yo and his entourage. No awful elevator system. Of course, my incredible security checkpoint luck continued. As I said, last night, I went through with Ryan Howard. Tonight? David Robinson. Read More »

Kobe Hits Another Game-Winner; Rajon Rondo Does The Unthinkable

Kobe Bryant

He might’ve made just four of his last 25 “clutch” shots and he might’ve shot the Lakers out of two or three games this season – most recently in Philly last week – and he might’ve missed six of his previous seven shots on this afternoon, but it wasn’t a surprise that Kobe was gonna take the one shot that counted in L.A.’s 94-92 win in Canada. Add another one to the highlight reel, this one a one-dribble pull-up on the baseline. Bryant (27 points) was a man down the stretch, hitting a ball-busting three and then getting a steal and an assist to put L.A. up one. Read More »

Lil Wayne Talks About Partying With The Dallas Mavericks

Lil Wayne

In the new issue of XXL which hits newsstands today, cover guy Lil Wayne talks about the release of his highly anticipated new album, Tha Carter IV, in addition to his retirement plans, Drake and Nicki Minaj‘s success, and why he’ll never record with Justin Bieber. But in addition to all that, Weezy takes us back to Sunday, June 12, when he was spotted partying with the Dallas Mavericks at LIV in Miami Beach. If the NBA made a commercial with a talking Larry O’Brien Trophy, this is what it would say: Read More »

Steve Nash: “I Met Lil Wayne And Got A Lap Dance From Nicki Minaj”

After Chris Paul‘s performance in Game 1, I figured Nicki Minaj was an honorary Kardashian or something. But then I stumbled upon a trend. With Lil Wayne‘s “I Am Still Music” tour moving on to the U.S. Airways Center last night in Phoenix, rap’s Barbie decided to bring another All-Star point guard, Steve Nash, out for a lap dance. After watching the video, I think Vince Carter‘s tweet sums it up, “If y’all could have seen @SteveNash face when @nickiminaj got on top of him… #Classic.” Next stop on the tour is Los Angeles this Friday. And with the Lakers in New Orleans, I guess that means Mo Williams is the next All-Star point guard in line…

Nicki Minaj Gives Chris Paul A Lap Dance In Front Of Lil Wayne

“It’s good to be home, New Orleans.” That’s what Lil Wayne told the audience last night after taking the stage in front of a sold-out crowd at New Orleans Arena. As part of his “I Am Still Music” tour, Weezy treated the hometown fans to surprise appearances by Drake and Chris Paul. But I don’t think CP knew this was going to happen when Nicki Minaj invited him out. I mean, he was wearing a Young Money chain…

NBA, The NBA's 30 Best Go-To Players / Oct 5, 2010 / 12:45 pm

Ranking the NBA’s 30 Go-To Guys (#24: Ben Gordon)

Ben Gordon

In basketball, being a go-to guy isn’t always about who takes the last-second shot. It’s the guy who regularly gets the basketball when things are getting tense in the fourth quarter; the guy expected to calm things down when teammates are getting antsy; the guy called upon to snuff out an opponent’s rally or spark a rally of his own; the guy who’s not just supposed to make shots, but make the right decisions. Bottom line: Who do you want the offense to run through when everything is on the line? Read More »
